Totalitarian America Tuesday

American assholes being assholes to fellow Americans because the Fascist State says it’s OK.

As police unleashed streams of icy water Sunday night against Dakota Access pipeline demonstrators, Linda Black Elk, a member of the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council, was helping care for injured demonstrators. The council estimated that 300 people were treated for injuries, including 26 who were taken to area hospitals.

“What it was like was people walking through the dark of a winter North Dakota night, some of them so cold, and sprayed with water for so long, that their clothes were frozen to their body and crunching as they walked. So you could hear this crunching sound and this pop-pop-pop, and people yelling [to the police], ‘We’ll pray for you! We love you!” Black Elk said, describing the scene as police sprayed protesters with water and fired tear gas and rubber bullets during the more than six-hour standoff.

“All of a sudden there were these bright, blinding spotlights, so you could see each other, but you couldn’t see [the police],” she said. “Every once in awhile you could hear someone scream who had been hit by a rubber bullet.”

In the midst of the clash, the Medic and Healer Council, which was set up to provide health support to those fighting the pipeline, released a statement pleading with police to halt the use of water cannons. “As medical professionals, we are concerned for the real risk of loss of life due to severe hypothermia under these conditions,” the statement said.

    I’m sick of Fascism already, it gives rise to the assholes out there that think they have the right to do what they please without retribution or punishment. We need to STOP enabling assholes!

    Bring back kindness and caring, that is if we can find it again after being trashed by bullies.

    Today’s Highlights in History:

    On Nov. 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was shot to death during a motorcade in Dallas; Texas Gov. John B. Connally, riding in the same car as Kennedy, was seriously wounded; suspected gunman Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested. The same day, authors Aldous Huxley and C.S. Lewis also died.

      I remember watching Walter Cronkite delivering the bad news, then saw LHO get shot on live TeeVee by Jack Ruby, quite disturbing for an 11 year old boy.

      America still solves it’s problems with bullets despite 50 years passing since that fatal day. Ripe for the Neo-fascist picking.

    Bad news for DAPL: The new Dictator’s first slaughter is coming.

    But then the idiots voted for change right?

    Thin sun out today and 29 minutes generally south along Grand Avenue to the Old European for a fab breakfast. Starts with fresh press orange juice.

    • David B. Benson says:

      Not inexpensive. Bill is $26.11 plus tip.

    • David B. Benson says:

      Total of 52 minutes took me to Shopko, via a stop at the new post office to pick up the form to renew my passport. Here to refill a couple of prescriptions.

      • David B. Benson says:

        Now a total of 79 minutes to downtown, with a stop at the insurance office to up my deductible and so lower my premium, and so to the Foundry again, this time for a pear salad.

        What’s a passport?

        Just kidding. I say “what’s stock” when people mention buying stock.

      • David B. Benson says:

        And after the tasty pear salad with a glass of chardonnay home up the College Hill Climb and Maple Street Extension without slowing or pausing, with a glorious gold and white sunset, for the daily total of 109 minutes. Earlier saw a kestrel? fly over. Life is good as my back muscles are untroublesome.

        Day 3: 228+109=337 minutes.

  5. David B. Benson says:

    Israel is a totalitarian democracy.

    Just learned this.

  6. Den says:

    I guess it does not matter what you call it, just ‘bully’ would suffice, ‘asshole’ however is a more accurate description due to the level of shit they produce then try to shove onto everyone else by force.

  7. Den says:

    I wonder what happened to Erling? I wouldn’t think we scared him off, he was in Turkey as last told, hope he made it out OK.

    • º¿carol says:

      It looked like he planned to come here more regularly, then he disappeared again. Can’t wait until he shows up to talk about Trump.

  8. º¿carol says:

    What a mess we have. The constant Trump news, my urge to keep abreast of it all is wearing on me. Perhaps ignorance IS bliss, then I wouldn’t find myself scared like I am of what he’s doing, what is to come, that no power anywhere in our government will do anything to stop the madman.
